Reading - Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare

Our first production of 2019, will be William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, to be performed between 12th and 16th February 2019 at The Ice Factory Studio Theatre. 

A reading of the script is scheduled for Sunday 7th October at 2:30 p.m. with auditions to be held on Sunday 14th October at 2:30 p.m. and Tuesday 17th October at 7:30 p.m.

As always, the reading and auditions are open to anyone. 

Romeo & Juliet is set in the city of Verona, Italy, where there is an on-going feud between the Montague and Capulet families. The play opens with servants from both sides involved in a street brawl that eventually draws in the family patriarchs and the city officials. Romeo, a young Montague, manages to attend a masked ball being held by the Capulets and there falls in love with Juliet at first sight. But the path of true love was never smooth. 

This play calls for a large cast ranging in age from teenagers to “elder statesmen and women” so there really is a chance for anyone to be involved. 

We are very fortunate in having Jon Miles and Nicole Davall co-directing this classic Shakespeare Tragedy which is this school year’s set text at GCSE and hopefully this will attract young actors as well as audiences..
